In terms of quality, let me briefly concur with Tanzer regarding the quality of the 2017 whites. My sample size is smaller than his, yet there are some quite brilliant whites that, many growers are beginning to opine, equal or even surpass the haloed 2014s.

The 2017 reds are very good, often excellent, and from time to time, bloody awesome…. The growing season did not leave such a heavy imprimatur upon the wines as others, including 2015 and 2016. Wines are governed more by the DNA of each vineyard and then sculpted by winemakers’ decisions. NEAL MARTIN, Vinous

Welcome to Prince Wine Store’s fourth annual Burgundy Grand Cru Horizontal. This has become one of, if not THE Australian wine event of the year for those lucky enough to be able to attend the extravaganza.

This event offers a rare opportunity to taste all the Grand Cru vineyards alongside one another. The horizontal system also levels the playing field with all the wines being from a single vintage. This year we will take an in depth look at the remarkable 2017s, a year that delivers wines of remarkable breathtaking freshness and site specificity along with an abundance of minerality. 2017 is a vintage that will be considered classic, for all the right reasons.

Over the past 18 months we have painstakingly collated a collection of wines from the great Domaines of Burgundy, particularly challenging this year with the added challenge of Covid to contend with. The list below reads like a who’s who of benchmark producers: Domaine de la Romanee Conti, Domaine Armand Rousseau, Mugneret Gibourg, Thibault Liger-Belair,  Jean-Marc Pillot, Clos de Lambrays, Liger Belair, Hubert Lamy, Dujac, de Vogue, Domaine Faively, Fourrier, Lamarche, Raveneau and Clos de Tart. The list is staggering. Some of these wines are rarely seen in Australia. This is the ultimate experience for any Burg-geek.

This tasting will take place on the Saturday across six sessions commencing at 9am for a 9:30 kick off: beginning with the white wines and the grand crus of the Cote de Beaune. All wines will be served masked but all attendees will be told the communes from which the wines originate. Comprehensive notes will be provided.

Lunch and accompanying wine will be provided on the day along with tea and coffee in each break.

Anyone who has attended this event in the past can attest to the fact that this tasting is one of the greatest wine experiences any serious wine person could ask for and the day is always a remarkable mix of fun and educational. We look forward to it for 364 days of the year, from the moment the previous Horizontal is finished

This event is limited to 18 people, this ensures that there is more than ample wine to go around and that the conversation can flow freely. The total value of the wines on tasting is in excess of $60,000 so for $5595 a head it is remarkable value.
